Second Game Ever To Do This: Minecraft Will Support Cross-Console Play

All of these servers will be available when the Better Together update launches this summer, and Mojang have confirmed they hope to bring on more server partners as time goes on. It follows last year's Friendly Update, which did the same in a limited capacity for mobile.

To avoid confusion, Microsoft will call the game's Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile versions simply as "Minecraft".

Any DLC you buy on Windows 10 will be redeemable in-game on any of the named devices - which conspicuously don't include PS4. Its Mojang studio continues to develop Minecraft Java Edition even as it brings its more advanced features to the Bedrock versions.

Microsoft announced on Sunday that it's unifying all versions of "Minecraft".

Then, anyone playing the game on Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, Xbox One, iOS, Android and Virtual Reality devices will be able to play online together.

"We have no intention to push people one way or other", said Minecraft communications manager Aubrey Norris.

"The amount of different ways to play is going to exponentially expand", Orrson said. Well, Microsoft is introducing a new Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft that will completely change how Minecraft looks and that should make Minecraft look gorgeous on the Xbox One S in native 4K.

Microsoft also detailed changes coming to Minecraft graphics this fall in another update.

It's a new concept for "Minecraft" as a platform unto itself rather than a distinct game.

What's more, Minecraft's visual pipeline has received a substantial upgrade, meaning the game might finally look impressive on anyone's 4K TV, thanks to better lighting, shadows, and water effects, the company said.
